Mutual Fund Rollover Transaction Complete, October 21, 2011 - Maple Leaf Short Duration 2010 Flow-Through LP

October 21, 2011

                               

TORONTO, ONTARIO,  October 21, 2011 – Maple Leaf Short Duration 2010 Flow-Through Limited Partnership (the “Partnership” CUSIP 56531A107) has completed a transaction (“Liquidity Transaction”) to which the assets of the Partnership (the “Assets”) transferred to the Maple Leaf Resource Class mutual fund (the “Mutual Fund” and or “CDO100”) of Maple Leaf Corporate Funds Ltd., an open-ended mutual fund corporation, in exchange for Resource Class - Series A shares of the Mutual Fund.

The transfer was on a tax deferred exchange basis and therefore no capital gains tax is payable.

Investors can elect to hold their Mutual Fund shares for long term growth and capital appreciation, switch tax-deferred into the Maple Leaf Income Class mutual fund for regular income and growth, or redeem their Mutual Fund shares for cash. Investors may have a capital gain when the Mutual Fund shares are redeemed.

There will be no fees charged on either the rollover to the Mutual Fund or on redemption of the Mutual Fund shares.

Once the Mutual Fund shares that the Partnership will receive as consideration for the transfer of the Assets are distributed to the Limited Partners, the Partnership will be dissolved.

The general partner of the Partnership (the “General Partner”) implemented this Liquidity Transaction in accordance with the limited partnership agreement (the “Partnership Agreement”) that governs the Partnership. This Liquidity Transaction has been mutually agreed to by the General Partner and the Mutual Fund and joint elections will be made to effect the transfer on a tax-deferred basis.

The effective date of the rollover is October 21, 2011. The Mutual Fund Shares will be distributed to the Partners on a pro rata basis and thereafter the Partnership will be dissolved.  The Partnership had a final net asset value of $13.37 per Unit. The net asset value per Mutual Fund Share at the time of the rollover was $10.00.   The after-tax return on at-risk capital was -11.34% (includes tax savings from investment tax credits, CEE and other operating deductions at an assumed marginal tax rate of 45%).

REDEMPTION

The Mutual Fund shares are in book-entry only form.   Partners who would like to redeem their Mutual Fund shares must contact their brokers or dealers to execute the redemption.  Processing at the dealer level can be delayed after the rollover occurs, therefore transactions such as switches or redemptions may not be processed until the Mutual Fund shares have been credited to client accounts.  Neither the Partnership nor the Mutual Fund will accept any liability for transactions in Mutual Fund Shares executed prior to dealer records being updated. 

MAPLE LEAF SHORT DURATION 2010 FLOW-THROUGH LIMITED PARTNERSHIP

The Partnership was established to provide Limited Partners with a tax-assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of flow-through shares of resource companies with a view to achieving capital appreciation for Limited Partners. The principal business of the resource companies was oil and gas exploration, development and/or production and mining exploration, development and/or production.
Investors received tax deductions for 2010 of approximately 100% of the amount of their investment.
